This chapter describes the last section of the workbook. It explores the adoption of new and useful coping strategies for different contexts. Coping is not only about making it through a stressful situation but also implies daily strategies that can help prevent more serious difficulties in the long run. The focus is also on preventing mental illness relapse by encouraging insight into one’s warning signs of relapse, concentrating on protective factors, and recognizing which coping strategies are most useful for which difficulties or symptoms. The chapter takes each session of the fourth section of the workbook and explains in detail the purpose of each activity, how to conduct it, and gives clinical examples to illustrate participants’ reactions to these sessions.
